Here's a quick peak into our 2012 photo shoot with this years Major League Soccer, Real Salt Lake team. This clip is primarily with RSL defender Chris Wingert as he was the lucky one to get a bit more time to shoot BTS with, but in the finished images you'll also see the usual suspects including: Kyle Beckerman, Nick Rimando, Nat Borchers, Will Johnson, Fabian Espindola, Javier Morales, and well as the rest of the team. So, first and foremost a huge shout out goes to all the athletes for being so cool to work with once again!
In terms of art direction for the shoot, we drew inspiration from a few ESPN cover stories over the last year or two and wanted to bring a bright (high key) feeling to the finished product as opposed to the moody/edgy RSL portraits we've shot in the past. Despite the very short amount of time we get with each player, I was stoked with the final results as was the creative team and I'm excited to see the finished product through this years marketing and advertising efforts. GO RSL 2012!!!
